A Florida native, Jennifer has enjoyed coming to the “other side of the mountain” to her family’s vacation home near Bryson City, NC since she was a young child. A chance mountain-biking trip began her love of Brevard in early 2012.

Jennifer relocated to Western North Carolina in 2014. An avid outdoor adventurer, she fell in love with everything this area has to offer and decided to call Pisgah Forest home. Jennifer got involved with Friends of DuPont Forest because she wanted to have an active voice in the decisions that will be made to keep the trails in DuPont Forest in tip-top shape well into the future.

With a Bachelor’s in Financial Services from San Diego State University and Master’s in Accounting from The University of North Florida, Jennifer has varied experience in financial services and accounting including audit with KPMG and financial planning and analysis with TIAA Bank. Serving as our past Treasurer, Jennifer is currently an at-large board member.

In her spare time, Jennifer enjoys everything outdoors – mountain biking, hiking, backpacking and kayaking.
